Re: attention jarkko!

... while writing, i bring to jarkko's attention (on the assumption that he monitors these messages), this small error that many years ago crept onto his otherwise fine website. Geoffrey I'm afraid the error is Leonard's, which leads me to the question whether or not it actually is an error... If y...

Re: Chelsea Hotel room 424

Hi Bev Thanks for the info! Of course, at $5000, this is a real bargain! 🙄 I remember the last time I visited the Chelsea in December 2010 there was a new doormat on top of the old one and just for a second I wondered how and if I would have been able to get my hands on the old Chelsea Hotel...

Re: Mysterious Leonard Cohen "1967 studio sessions" album - any information?

Hi This is the first time I've heard of these collections! It would be a surprize if they were available on Apple Music for a short period of time, probably a mistake, don't you think? Anyway: it looks like we will have some new releases of unpublished songs/versions in the future! Fingers crossed! ...

Re: Will there be posthumous disc?

I dream of unreleased album outtakes with unheard Cohen lyrics. Songs that Cohen deemed too profound to release at the time. Songs that he considered too beautiful that they might shortcircuit ears, too moving, they might explode hearts, and too insightful, they might shatter psyches. Well put...!
